learning, small class size, and continuous assessment. Incorporating these attributes into classrooms in the Gulf requires more than simply listing similar course descriptions. Instead, there must be an understanding and appreciation by all of the potential benefits of such instruction. student Life activities: Perhaps even more than academics, successful U.S. universities are known for the activi-

ties that take place outside the classroom. Clubs, dorms, libraries, international exchanges, internships, community service, student government, athletics, and work experience nurture and shape students on campus. Institutions must commit resources to hire professional staff and build physical structures for these activities. Moreover, they must be able to communicate the importance of these cocurricular activities.

(Institutions in the Gulf have historically been more similar to those in Western Europe. While a library, on-campus residences, and some clubs may be found, the concept of student life activities complementing academic activities has really not existed.) 

Preparation for the Workforce:

Graduates of U.S. campuses in the Gulf run the risk of being ill prepared for employment in the region. These students must possess linguistic, cultural, and disciplinespecific knowledge of both the host country and the United States. Gulf universities often require a general education course in Arabic history or culture; however, more preparation must take place, particularly to ensure that students have the necessary language skills to succeed in the country or region.

opportunities from Good Groundwork
Opportunities exist for establishing new campuses in the Gulf, but those pursuing these partnerships must understand the hard work required before committing to an agreement. Setting out on a trip or two to the region is the easy part. Understanding areas of potential conflict and finding ways to resolve such challenges are much more labor intensive. The Gulf has experienced rapid economic growth in the last several decades. In response to the demands for an educated workforce, the number of campuses established by U.S. institutions, as well as institutions from other countries, has multiplied greatly. In the UAE, for example, approximately 40 international campuses can be found—about the same number of U.S. campuses established in Japan in the 1980s. Today, only Temple University survives in Japan. It is premature to write the history of American higher education in the Gulf. Education City in Qatar appears to be a qualified success with participating institutions offering specific professional programs: Carnegie Mellon (business, computer science, and information systems), Cornell (medicine), Georgetown (foreign service), Northwestern (communication and journalism), Texas A&M (chemical,
